I’ve gotten pretty good over the years at trusting my gut. Especially in business and art. My spidey sense usually works pretty well! This time…not so much.
I got an email from a company offering a fountain pen for review. What harm could there be, right? I ignore and delete these offer emails 99% of the time, they’re usually companies promoting terrible knockoffs – but I ignored that.
However I did get a project ready and didn’t let the product stop me in my tracks.
Tutorial: Trusting your art intuition
In the video you’ll see an unboxing of a Dryden Designs pen but don’t buy one! It had a myriad of issues, and when I emailed the company (givig them the chance to send a new working pen) they’ve never replied. So there’s that. I switched to my Peter Pen instead.
